Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Launches Out Of This World™, a New Genre of Circus with the Brand’s First-Ever Character-Driven Storyline

World Premiere Features Immersive Audience Experience and
Never-Before-Seen Performances in the U.S.

ELLENTON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#OutOfthisWorldRingling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® today
hosts the World Premiere of its newest circus, Out Of This World™,
making its debut at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California.
Signaling a new genre of circus, Out Of This World reimagines the
circus experience and is unlike anything ever seen in Ringling Bros.®
history. The show captivates audiences with its first-ever
character-driven storyline and ice performances that invite fans to
follow a heroic quest of good versus evil on an intergalactic adventure.


“With Out Of This World, we are redefining Ringling Bros.
and modernizing live family entertainment,” said Alana Feld, Executive
Vice President of Feld Entertainment and Producer of Out Of This World.
“The immersive atmosphere created by lighting technology and video
projection, combined with a thrilling storyline that will have families
cheering for the heroes and booing the villains, will allow fans to
connect with the show and our performers like never before.”

The technology in Out Of This World provides a multisensory
experience, and video screen production enhancements deepen the
connection between the audience, the performances and the performers’
journey through space. Projection technology transports fans to far-off
planets throughout the galaxy and transforms the arena into a swirling
space-scape.

From the moment the show begins, audiences are transported to outer
space as the Simet Wheel performers embark on a gravity-defying
spacewalk. Making its U.S. debut, the Simet Wheel requires incredible
balance and artistry, which performers demonstrate as astronauts
exploring the galaxy. The only performance of its kind in the world, the
Simet Wheel combines the skill of tightrope walking with the added
challenge of a rotating wheel.

The adventure continues to unfold as Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson
and Starseeker Paulo dos Santos invite audiences to join their
intergalactic journey. Guests follow the duo as they travel to planets
of sand, water, fire and ice, battling evil Queen Tatiana on a mission
to rescue the greatest and most talented circus stars.

New this year, Ringling Bros. will feature performances on ice.
Thrill skaters combine acrobatic disciplines and trick skating in an
exciting display of athleticism. The Heilongjiang Provincial Acrobatic
Troupe Co. Ltd. performs a variety of impressive feats on ice, including
stilt-skating, human pyramid formations and hoop-diving. A talented
group of freestyle skaters also makes its U.S. debut, delighting crowds
with skilled technique and daring aerial stunts at stunningly fast
speeds.

The free, all-new Ringling
Bros.

helps keep families connected before, during
and after the show. The app allows fans to customize and share memories
on social media, as well as unlock exclusive content during Starseeker’s
